I am refering to space When I am facing Donatra I have many "Anti-cloak" and one "Detect" cloak abilitys. They are:
Metron Gas
Eject Warp plasma
Grappler
Tachyon Detection Field
Ionized Gas Sensor


THEY DO NOT WORK what so ever
Can anyone or even a Dev etc explain why they lose thier purpose, I bought these things and I expect them to work
Thanks for your Time

Because that is a Nemesis Schmitar design... a ship with lots of weapons, thalaron generator, and a perfect cloak.

The Enterprise-E only found the ship when cloaked by telepathic help; their sensors did squat... and I think even in the future, where technology on both sides has been developed, this would still hold true, even with the anti-cloak abilities.

One more thing... the Point Defense Console seems to ignore cloaks since it works purely by proximity without target lock.
I haven't tested it in KA, but it SHOULD work against Donatra if she doesn't completely defy the game mechanics.

if it does, you should see a bunch of micro explosion moving around, which will be the hits on her hull. Doing some nice bit of damage at the same time.

I've spotted her under cloak using my Galor equipped with the Jem'Hadar set, but only for a few seconds and I had to be right on top of her.

The Jem'Hadar Anti-Proton scan will leave a red orb on her after she cloaks, you can use that or use fighters that have been ordered to attack or mines as a way of following her after she cloaks.

If everyone stays back 5km she will not cloak at all.

This. No matter how many times I say it every time I get to that point, very few people ever listen. They get right in her face, then complain that she cloaks when they get the aggro. *facepalm*

I've triggered her cloak entirely by accident, but I usually just shrug and go "whatever, she'll come back". On normal, she generally cloaks once or twice before you take her down. I haven't tried it on elite yet because I'm still trying to get all the weapons on my escort up to at least MK11 first, MK12 if I can afford them.

Indeed, who cares, just take that hag down and be done with it.

Whether it's done from beyond 5km or at point blank spamming TCD dispersals and warp plasma doesn't matter. Everyone gets their dil, their tech chance and some other loot all the same.

Next thing I know I will see people in KASE warping in to start the mission and go raging on about Donatra. Hello, you want team cohesion you work on breaking the ice and supporting teammates from the get go.

Not stay silent for 15 minutes then rage at people when some minor inconsequential issue goes wrong.

One other thing, what if the team were using fighter carriers or ships that can't get out of the way in time? What do people want to do, rage at them for not 'getting the heck away from Donatra'?

Here's what I do:

Announce "engage at pilots' discretion"
Win the mission
Be surprised that without ordering anyone around, victory is gained in short order.
